1. easy way replace whole door if you can find the right color.
2. find a cranker door at a bone yard take the stuff out and put it in your door. Not very hard at all. All the holes should be there, take a picture with your phone if you cant remember where stuff goes. You may want the inside door panel cause it will have the hole already made for the crank.

Hi Dana,
I'm glad we got your taurus fixed. Thanks for the "Kudos".
If you can hear the window motor on your BMW running and making a bunch of popping and cracking sounds and your window is not moving, it is because you have a broken window regulator. The part you need looks like the picture below. The door panel as well as the sound insuator and rear glass must be removed to replace it. This sounds much harder than it really is. Actually, BMW has one of the easiest window regulators in the world to change. The hard part is getting the sound insulator off of the door without destroying anything. You will need a couple of single-edge razor blades to pull this one off.

If you think you will need step-by-step instructions with diagrams, just visit my profile and click on one of my "Pro Services" and sign up for email support and I will be happy to send you the factory service information for your rear door.(Haynes eat-your-heart-out, good info!)

Need to remove rear right side door panel to fix the window


More that likely, the plastic guides that run up and down the "window regulator" are broken. If you take off the door panel, check for broken plastic pieces in the inside of the door shell. It is a common problem. However, the fix is not that easy - or cheap. It requires replacing the entire "regulator" with a new one. The repair requires removing the door panel, taking off the screws that hold the dual rail regulator and cables and unplugging the motor. The new regulator is about $70 from RockAuto.com or you can order from Autozone for around $105-115. I can't find anyone who sells it without the motor which is probably not bad. However, replacing the whole thing is much easier anyway. I'd suggest that you get the new one before you remove the old one. It is a lot easier to see how to take it out if you know what it looks like.

How do i replace the window motor


This is a common problem with driver side window. Its just a wear and tear problem. Don't go to the dealership, the Regulator will cost you over $230. Go to Amazon.com and search for the part number which should cost you only $70-80 or so. If you go to a glass place they will charge you dealership price plus $150 per hour. I say do it yourself which goes a little something like this.

95 blazer, front driver window motor broken need to get window up


When removing the door panel, you need to remove all of the screws first. Then pull the door panel off. There should be screws around the edges or the door panel, and 1-2 screw on the door handle(on the inside). Then pop the door panel off, if the blazer has electric windows and locks you have to disconect them first, if it doesnt have power locks and windows, you have to take the window crank off,there should be a screw in the center of that. Unscrew the door lock and pull up. If it doesnt have them locks then you have to disconect it from inside the door panel
